Short Biography

Dr. Eugene Santos, Jr. received his B.S. ('85) in Mathematics and Computer Science from Youngstown State University, a M.S. ('86) in Mathematics (specializing in Numerical Analysis) from Youngstown State University, as well as Sc.M. ('88) and Ph.D. ('92) degrees in Computer Science from Brown University. He is currently Professor of Engineering in the Thayer School of Engineering at Dartmouth College, Hanover, NH. Prior to joining Dartmouth in 2005, he was on the faculty at the University of Connecticut (97-05) and the Air Force Institute of Technology (92-97). His areas of research interest include artificial intelligence, intent inferencing, knowledge aggregation and fusion, social and cultural modeling, computational social science, automated reasoning, decision science, adversarial reasoning, user modeling, natural language processing, probabilistic reasoning, and knowledge engineering, verification and validation, protein folding, and information retrieval and content analyses. He is a Fellow of the IEEE and was Editor-in-Chief for the IEEE Transactions on Cybernetics (formerly IEEE Transactions on Systems, Man, and Cybernetics: Part B) from 2008-2013. He is also on the editorial boards for the International Journal of Image and Graphics, Journal of Intelligent Information Systems, and Journal of Experimental and Theoretical Artificial Intelligence. He also has many hobbies including volleyball, music composition, wood working, science fiction, raising goldfish and Koi, and Chinese culture. He was born in 1968 in Columbus, Ohio.

 

 

Recruiting for Doctoral Students (Starting Winter 2015 or Fall 2015)

I am seeking candidates with backgrounds in computer engineering, computer science, mathematics, or equivalent at the Bachelors or Masters level. Experience in software engineering, empirical studies, probability theory, statistics and modeling and analyses are a plus though not required. Exceptional candidates will be provided funding covering both tuition and stipend based on research performance. If you are interested in applying, please email me your cv and an unofficial copy of your transcript both in pdf to me at eugene.santos.jr at dartmouth.edu.
